Listen as my two guest, Wendy Matthews, Director of Business Development and Kim Schortmann, MS, OTR/L, MBA, Community Education Liaison from Ascend Hospice share their passion, personal experiences, provide education, separate facts from myths and answer important questions everyone should know regarding hospice and palliative care.
